I have been having an odd problem lately. I can no longer watch YouTube or stream anything (pandora, online videos, etc.) on my computer. I'm running Windows 7 with 6 GB RAM and an Intel i5 2.5GHz. Youtube will load about 5 seconds of video then stop and pandora works on occasion but I usually get the first 30 seconds or so of a song then just choppy skipping after that. I have tried using Chrome, Firefox, Opera and IE and the problem persists across all browsers.

I find this particularly odd because I play a few relativity high-end online video games which run perfectly. Also, when I first got this computer about 6 months ago, these things worked fine, this has only been going on about a month. I have run virus scans, spyware scans, and I even restored my computer state back before this issue and I still can't use these things.

Is there something I have missed? Anyone know what could possibly cause this annoying problem?

This isn't an internet service issue either because I get the exact same problem at home, on campus, and at my friends houses.
